Highly-affluent professionals and families who want a character-filled Toronto home for sale in a bucolic setting.
Lawrence Park, often referred to as Lawrence Park South, is one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in city. It boasts tranquil ravine and park settings, winding streets and some of the most character-filled houses for sale in Toronto. From its roots as one of Toronto’s first planned suburbs, Lawrence Park has grown into one of the most affluent postal codes in Canada, often topping the charts for Canada’s richest neighbourhood.
Lawrence Park may not have the same grandeur and privacy as the Bridle Path’s enormous gated-estates nor the fanfare and proximity to downtown as Rosedale but we think it should be top of the list for those who want a sense of individuality and character to their luxury property. If you have the budget, don’t pass up a Toronto house for sale in Lawrence Park which offers many unique attributes that you won’t find in Toronto’s other exclusive neighbourhoods.
Why We Love Lawrence Park
Because a Little Whimsy Goes a Long Way
Lawrence Park houses are often described as whimsical. We would agree that that’s the one common defining attribute. Homes here have traditional charm with a fanciful edge as seen in features such as stone or stucco facades paired with elaborate trim work and leaded glass windows or substantial fireplaces with intricately-carved mantels.
Although most properties have undergone extensive interior renovations, residents are generally careful to preserve the original character of their homes including the more imaginative finishing touches. The results allow for modern living in a traditional home with a dreamy quality.
Its Storybook Settings make us Believe in Happily Ever After
Okay, so a house can’t make you happy but turning it into a home by building memories and traditions is certainly a great start. And Lawrence Park properties provide the perfect setting. The surrounding greenery combined with the old world charm houses and English-garden landscapes feel like something out of a fairy-tale.
If you’re lucky enough to purchase a house bordered by ravine or parkland, you’ll enjoy the feeling of being tucked away in your own little lush, tranquil enclave. Even houses in the centre of Lawrence Park tend to have deep, heavily-treed lots and the houses are set back from the road to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life.
